    There is no remote control for the iPad to enable it to do what you want. The programs ('apps') in an iPad are isolated ('sandboxed') and have only very limited ability to interact. So it would not be possible for an app resident on the iPad to control other apps unless this was explicitly allowed by the iPad's operating system, iOS.

    Remote control of iPad

    It's easy to see reasons for remote controlling of an iPad. I just bought one for my sister, and she is a few hundred miles away from me. It would be awfully handy for me to be able to just logon to her iPad and help her out rather than have to try to walk her through things.

    Not sure I'm answering your question properly. I'm assuming you mean tethering? Anyway, there's no need to buy anything, as the devices have the capability built right in.

    Turn on your personal hotspot in the Settings of your iPhone, and follow the instructions contained there. You have the choice of Bluetooth or wifi. I use wifi, as I have a wireless keyboard connected via Bluetooth, but both methods work well.

    why?

    There are several situations in wich I would love to control My Ipad with a remote. Ex: Right now my ipad is connected to my TV and I'm watching a movie from Netflix, in order to stop, rewind or fast foward I have to tand up and walk toward the ipad :( :thumbsdown:

    I heard a rumour that LogMeIn were working with Apple to make this possible, at least for their Rescue product. That may just be talk to sell licences though.

    iOS 5 supports mirroring...

    Well, since iOS 5 now supports mirroring over AirPlay, it might just be a matter of time before some developer takes advantage of it for at least some kind of remote monitoring solution. (???)

    I too like connecting my iPad to stereo aux inputs (ones that don't support ipod integration), but don't want to have to control track selection manually on the pad. A Remote would eiminate that problem.

    Do you have an answer? My mom is 86 and remote controlling her iPad would save a lot of frustration. Thx
